Ingredients:

1 pound chicken tenders, cut into bite-sized pieces

3/4 pound chorizo sausage or kielbasa, diced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
6 small red potatoes, diced
One 15-ounce can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 teaspoons hot sauce
One 15-ounce can fire roasted chopped tomatoes
1 quart low-sodium chicken broth
One 15-ounce can corn, rinsed and drained

Directions:

1. Preheat medium soup pot over medium high heat. Add olive oil and chicken to pot, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lightly brown chicken about 2 minutes. Add chorizo and garlic. Cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Add peppers, onions and potatoes and sauté for an additional 5 minutes. Stir in hot sauce, tomatoes, corn and pepperoncini juice. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.
